Everyone is getting used to a new normal, one which changes weekly, and quite frankly is somewhat bewildering. Our new normal also includes settling into the new house and making it home, remembering where we put things, starting to think about things other than boxes and letting the powers that be know where we are, and more importantly for them- where to send their bills. We’re getting there slowly and surely day by day.
Scary oven and hob are being tamed.
The dining room is nearly clear of boxes. I think I could put the sewing machine on the table now.
I love the display in the hall- my Mum’s paperweight and the crochet cactus kindly sent by Rainbow Junkie- it brightens my day every time I see it, thank you.
The rest of the house is slowly appearing from under the sea of cardboard. Best of all of course is being able to go for a walk with my son and grandchildren.
This is our walk yesterday at Coate Water park.
A lovely walk round the lake, swans, geese, ducks, dragonflies.
Trees and children , and a most unusual grade two listed structure.
Yes, it’s listed, and yes it is a diving board. Should you be interested into why it’s listed , here’s a link-Coate Water Diving Platform
Can’t wait for the putting course and museum to open, when they do.
It’s beginning to feel like home.
